Laser Eye Surgery at Laser Eye Center of Carolina

Dr. Dornic, a leading LASIK Raleigh and Durham surgeon, along with his carefully assembled medical team perform all vision correction procedures using the same leading-edge technology approved by the Department of Defense to correct the vision of astronauts and fighter pilots. In fact, Dr. Dornic was the first ophthalmologist in the Raleigh / Durham area to perform IntraLase®, a revolutionary advance in LASIK that eliminates the need for a metal blade during the creation of the corneal flap. In addition to the IntraLase system, during LASIK Dr. Dornic uses CustomVue wavefront mapping in conjunction with the advanced VISX Star laser system to correct even the smallest imperfections in the eye. Dr. Dornic has successfully performed LASIK on other physicians as well as many of his own staff and their loved ones, who are now enjoying life with greater freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

Cataract Surgery at Laser Eye Center of Carolina

Dr. Dornic is an accomplished cataract surgeon with extensive experience performing no-needle, no-stitch cataract surgery, a type of cataract surgery which promotes faster recovery. He offers advanced intraocular lens implants for the replacement of the eye's clouded lens, including AcrySof ReSTOR multifocal lenses and the accommodating Crystalens. The implantation of these premium IOLs can eliminate or reduce the need for eyeglasses following cataract surgery.

Implantable Contact Lenses at Laser Eye Center of Carolina

Dr. Dornic also offers a variety of other vision correction procedures, including Intacs and Visian ICLs. Intacs are inserted via a small incision in the eye and are often the best treatment option for patients who suffer from keratoconus. Visian implantable lenses are used for those patients with high myopia who are not candidates for LASIK.

Presbyopia Treatment at Laser Eye Center of Carolina

Presbyopia is an age-related condition that affects the eye's ability to focus, thus distorting near vision. As an experienced presbyopia specialist, Dr. Dornic may utilize one of several treatment methods, including presbyopic lens exchange surgery (PRELEX). During PRELEX surgery, Dr. Dornic uses the same sophisticated implant lenses used during cataract surgery. When implant lenses are not a solution, Dr. Dornic performs NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty), which uses radio frequency energy to correct presbyopia.

Dr. Dornic performs all vision correction procedures in his state-of-the-art surgical suite, where he maintains the highest standards of patient safety, comfort and personalized care. He strongly believes that by incorporating the latest FDA-approved technologies he and his medical team are able to reduce the chance of complications and achieve optimal vision correction results.

Dr. Dornic offers a range of advanced treatments for vision correction at his state-of-the art offices.
